Casa Orinda has been serving the finest Western and Italian food in the area for the past 84 years. We are famous for our fried chicken, prime beef, and classic Italian pasta, chicken, and veal dishes -- everything being made from scratch in our kitchen using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients.

Our full service mahogany bar is a popular stop for locals and visitors looking for a nice refreshment and a hearty meal in a cozy, friendly atmosphere. We have three dining rooms, each with a slightly different character afforded by our hand-formed brass hearth fireplace, Western original art collection, famous antique gun collection, and alluring floral arrangements.

    Time stopped but the chicken Parm kept going... into my mouth until the plate was empty. Soft bread, great service and attention to detail. The reason why they've been in business so long. Now it's time for me to go back into my food coma.

    We've been here many times and have always been treated well. The staff is friendly, accommodating and the food is not only good but plentiful. So many restaurants have had to raise their prices, but this restaurant is still reasonable, and they have not skimped on quality or quantity.

    I was very disappointed that after I requested (and confirmed by Casa Orinda) that my daughter's birthday was not acknowledged as I asked. the meal was very satisfying and the service was good. We wanted this is a "special" occasion for her.

    Our favorite dining spot! Diverse menu offers many excellent choices that never disappoint. Best fried chicken in the Bay Area served with mashed potatoes and gravy, fresh veggies and a yummy biscuit and honey - always delicious! Large cuts of prime rib and New York steak at reasonable prices, outstanding hamburgers, even ham steak and eggs are always available, along with generous servings of veal entrees and pasta choices. Leave room for one of a wide selection of desserts. Staff is always friendly and professional!

    I was very excited to eat there and have never been. I took my Mom for a special occasion. We didn't know it was going to be very, very dark and extremely noisy. I'll go back with a friend maybe earlier in the evening. Still excited to try their famous chicken!

    All was good except I discovered after the fact that I was charged for 4 cups of wine when we only ordered 3. I ordered my wine with my entre. The waiter forgot to bring it, so when I requested it, he must have forgotten my original request and assumed it was an additional request. We were also charged for 3 cups of coffee when we only had two. My bad, I should have checked out the check before paying. The waiter was nice enough, but seemed over worked and too much on his mind. Overall, a nice experience .

    Casa Orinda is GREAT! But watch out for this app, Open Table, Casa had us down for 6:45pm but I put reservation in for 8:15pm. Casa took care of it immediately and got us a very nice table by the fire. I told Casa I’ll just call. Was trying something new for reservation.

    I've been eating at Casa Orinda for more than 40 years. My favorite, Veal Vincente, has been downgraded in taste and presentation. It used to be layered with thick slices of eggplant, round slices of veal, and bearnaise sauce. Today the eggplant is thin and not fresh- maybe purchased frozen. Instead of bearnaise, it has a brown sauce with bearnaise dribbled over the top. Bearnaise also appears to be purchased - flavor has been downgraded. It used to be a fabulous dish. Now, not so much. Yet the price has been increased to almost unreasonable. I still love the bread. While a plate of lettuce (maybe some carrots strips) is "just" $10, their salad dressings are good. Service is always good. A little shocked to pay over $60 for the prime rib special. Yes, it was massive, but the server should have mentioned the price and size.

    Had another great experience at Casa Orinda. Went there on a Wednesday night with reservations for five. The place was packed. Maybe a little understaffed. Had to be ready to order when waitstaff came around. Still great food and once we got things ordered, things were timely. Casa Orinda is still great and I’m so glad they are around serving classic American dishes.

    We went for an anniversary dinner. We scored a table near the fireplace, which was very nice. My wife had the Cobb salad to satisfy her craving for the blue cheese dressing, and I had the legendary fried chicken. Everything was very good and it was a great way to celebrate.
